Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
On this episode of WTS we’re talking about the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine.” We talk about art education for children, drugs and rock and roll, and whether it’s actually true that all you need is love. We also stray from our central premise a little to just talk about The Beatles.

We’d love to hear from you! You can talk to us about Yellow Submarine, or any of the movies we’ve talked about, or you can even just say hi by tweeting to us, or shooting us an email at waytooseriously at gmail.com if what you have to say will take more than 140 characters! You can also discuss this episode in our subreddit. We’re on facebook and instagram too if you care about those things! Paul has started doing a drawing for every movie we watch and posting it on instagram. He doesn’t promise to keep it up forever, but there is one for The Breadwinner!
